Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! As someone who has travelled 5 star for a number of years (15) and who meticulously researches expedia/tripadvisor etc, I have to tell you that this place is special. We turned up not knowing what to expect (I had looked at LV8 in Canggu and 5 star in Seminyak) and were completely blown away - the pics dont do it justice. A 5 star resort but feels like "old" Bali.. As you enter the reception which feels like walking through an ancient Balinese palace into a stunning entrance! OMG! Serene, calm, peaceful, soul cleansing, heaven. Ari and Maggie set the tone with superb service and management - an amazing entrance and even more amazing rooms - done with that "old Bali" feel of dark woods, exotic scents, rich fabrics and comfort - a real taste of Bali - NOT the Kuta/Seminyak experience where you dont dare venture out of your 5 star hotel (although Kuta is only 30 mins away and AUD$7 to get there!). The pool and the beach - a surfing beach - are amazing - there is no one selling you stuff, the food is great and there are numerous cafes around the complex. We stayed in Room 203 - like a 5 star treehouse overlooking the ocean - absolutely beautiful - waking up to breakfast in your own luxury room, opening your sliding doors to another room with sunken bath, massage beds and 180 degree views of the ocean followed by lounging by the pool or the fantastic day beds by the ocean - bliss. Not a lot of kids around but if you have teenagers who surf, this is your spot! I could not recommend highly enough - what a secret little piece of heaven. Go now, as I dont reckon this will be a secret long - told about 20 people already!

Room Tip: Room 203 is absolutely beautiful! Like a 5 star treehouse - 8 m from the pool and 20m from the ocea...

Firstly a warm thanks and hugs to all the Tugu Bali Team members - you are the best. We have been returning years after years (after the most superb wedding on Tugu Beach in 2008 with friends and family) and you always impress us. This month we returned with a group of 15 friends for again a memorable and very special beach evening. the dinner was exquisite (thanks Pak Gusti) but the layout of the grounds especially for our group, the service (Ibu Sri and all the others), the ambience you create was just magical - you are truly the best :)
Look forward to seeing you again very soon

My husband and I started our honeymoon at the Tugu Bali and we had an amazing experience from beginning to end. The pictures of the premise caught our attention when we were looking for a hotel, and the hotel was as beautiful if not more than what we had expected. It was a true museum and unlike any other hotel out there.

Hotel staff also made our stay extremely pleasant, with their attention to details and knowledge of the Balinese and Indonesian culture.

Finally, we can't rave enough about the food we tasted at Tugu. It was unparalleled, and we didn't have such delights at other places in Indonesia.

All in all, this is probably the best hotel we've had a chance to visit, ever.

We stayed at the Hotel Tugu Bali for our honeymoon in April 2013. The resort itself was like a museum with lots of Asian arts and artifacts. Upon arrival, we were offered a 15 min complementary massage and a tour of the hotel. The hotel staffs were all very nice and helpful. The food was good and reasonably priced for a high-end resort. I would highly recommend this hotel if you way a romantic, peaceful and relaxing experience in a traditional Balinese surrounding.

This place is fantastic! My girlfriend and I are still here, we have been here 3 days and never want to leave! The hotel is right on the beach with an attended lawn overlooking Canggu which is fantastic. The spa is awesome, you can get a treatment or massage in your room, in the beautiful tropical gardens or by the pool. You can spend the day surfing then get a deep sports massage when you have walked the 20 yards back to your room - it doesn't get any better than that! The staff cannot do enough to help you without being pushy or asking you too much, its a really nice atmosphere. The hotel is stunning, its based around a large Balinese hall with traditional carvings and bespoke jewellery and antiques all over. The room we had, which was by no means the most exclusive, had a semi-outside bathroom (!) its own little pol and garden and pool with fish in it (that wrapped around the semi-outside bathroom!). The room garden backs onto the tropical gardens around the hotel grounds and the hotel faces west for the incredible Indian Ocean sunset. If you are looking for a "Sandals" type resort, this is not the place, but if you want tranquility and a truly individual hotel on one of the best surf beaches around then this is the place. They are building along the beach to the north and there will soon be some larger hotels on Canggu and Echo beach but the Tugu should still be very individual. The folk on the beach are reaaly nice and the surfers are all friendly, there are waves for all standards from beginners close in and off the reef to the semi-pros way out back for the 10 foot monsters. I will be coming back to Tugu again next time we're in Bali, it is the nicest place I have ever been!

We have celebrated our wedding in Tugu Bali at the beginning of October 2013, and we have to say, that it was the best decision and choice we have ever taken! We had an incredible wedding, as Tugu cooperated with our wedding planners perfectly in order to create the wedding celebration "our way", and the result was just excellent! All our almost 60 guests agreed, that it was the best wedding they have ever attended. The main reason is the special venue area at the beach and the beautiful atmosphere of the Tugu Hotel, as most of our guests lodged there.
The Service of the Tugu staff is not always the fastest, but very friendly and good. You are there to relax, and they let you relax! The breakfast is better than any buffet breakfasts of topgrade hotels. It is a la carte, but if you take the "Tugu Plus" you have almost as many choices as on a buffet, and everything is very fresh and good. The best is, you can have your breakfast at any time (even in the evening!) anywhere you want in the hotel area, so you do not need to rush to get your breakfast with thousands of other people until 10:30am in the morning, like in other hotels. And the food in Tugu (lunch, dinner) is also excellent!
The rooms are the main highlight of the Tugu Hotel! Even the standard rooms are huge an spacious, with a small private pool outside (Dedari) resp. a huge bathing area with an antique sheet metal tub in the balcony area (Rejang). The bathrooms are very beautiful, with stone bathtubs, large windows with colored glass, and when you open them, you almost stand in your garden and in small pond with fishes. The whole hotel is packed with real antique furnitures and artifacts. Besides the entrance is a dinner room, which is an old Chinese temple, which has been brought from China and rebuilt up here many years ago (Tugu Bali is one of the oldest hotels in Bali - more than 22 years). The hotel area is very green with all kinds of tropical plants. The beach close by (1 min. walk) is wild and natural with amazing waves (you only see some surfers on the waves, but the beach is relatively empty). The venue space of the Tugu at the beach has two large beds, from where you can relax and enjoy the sunset. You can even order a bed for special dinners, so the staff arrange it accordingly, really beautiful. Besides that you have sun loungers and umbrellas there. You can also arrange to have your breakfast at the beach.
Tugu really makes you feel at home. And even if all 20 rooms are booked out, you never feel, that it is "crowded", it maintains always the relaxed atmosphere. We decided to come back every year to celebrate our anniversaries here.
